How did the devil get into the story?
  • For God created us for incorruption, and made us
    in the image of his own eternity, but through the

    will raise my throne above the stars of God I
    will sit on the mount of assembly on the heights
    of Zaphon 14I will ascend to the tops of the
    clouds, I will make myself like the Most High."
    15But you are brought down to Sheol, to the
    depths of the Pit. --Isaiah 14 12-15.

The Idea of the Fall of Adam in Hellenistic
  • O Adam, what have you done?
  • For though it was you who sinned, the fall was
    not yours alone, but ours also who are your
  • --4 Ezra (late 1th c. C.E.) 7 118. 9

    transgressed, and was overcome, as were also all
    who were descended from him.

St. Pauls Adam/ Christ typology
  • Therefore, just as sin came into the world
    through one man, and death came through sin, and
    so death spread to all because all have sinned
    Yet death exercised dominion from Adam to Moses,
    even over those whose sins were not like the
    transgression of Adam, who is a type of the one
    who was to come.
  • --Romans 5 12, 14.

    that he made humankind on the earth, and it
    grieved him to his heart. (Gen 6 5-6).
  • Now the earth was corrupt and the earth was
    filled with violence. (Gen 6 11).
  • The inclination of the human heart is evil from
    youth. (Gen 8 21).
